Our experts are going to be answering some common questions about GABA in skin care, so read on to learn more.
What does GABA do for the Skin?
GABA (Aminobutyric Acid) is a non-protein amino acid and is plant derived. You find GABA in plant sources such as spinach, sweet potatoes, broccoli, or kale.
GABA can quickly penetrate the skin and relax tense muscles. This helps wrinkles and lines smooth out and relax as well. GABA is considered nature's Botox. When you include GABA in your daily skin care routine, lines and wrinkles are reduced and can disappear over time. Because GABA is a natural muscle relaxant, it makes it ideal for anti-aging skin care and preventing future wrinkles and signs of aging.
The effects of GABA on the skin our immediate, as well as accumulative, building overtime and maintaining a more relaxed muscle function.
In skin care GABA is also classified as a barrier protectant as well as a collagen booster. These added benefits can make GABA all that much more appealing when including in your skin care routine.
